We have been given due notice, called loud and long for charter members. If you would walk side by side with some of the best women and men of Texas, and have your name enrolled as a member of a society whos name will go down in history, fail not to be with us on the above date. If you have any fears that it will not be a popular so ciety, remember the best women of your town and country ara behind it. No wonder someone of old said when you want the world to moye, enlist the women. In my first appeal when I called for men and they did not respond as largely as I thought they should, I called for the mothers and daughters, and they re sponded gladly and numerously. By some hook or crook the men soon learned that the ladies had come to my rescue in this good work. The result, every maq in the town and country is tapping me on the elbow as I pass by, saying put me down as a charter member. Thanks to the ladies for the life they have put into the men in such a noble cause. We want every lady and gentleman, especially the ladies, to meet on the above date and we will organize one of the largest and most honorable societies of the Panhandle. We expect members from every town in the Panhandle to meet with us. Respectfully, J. W. Cartwrioht. Q. B. Burhans Testifies After Four Years. 0. B. Burhans, of Carlisle Cen ter, N.

It entirely stopped the brick dust sediment, and pain and symptoms of kidney disease disappeared. I am glad to say that I have never had a return of any of those symp toms during the four years that have elapsed and I am evidently cured to 6tay cured, and heartily recommend Foley's Kidney Cure to any one suffering from kidney or bladder trouble."
